Leland Maples runs the LOOP’s Ministries (Loved Ones Of Prisoners) and leads a Thursday night bible study held in the Rec Room at Life Change Baptist Church in Odessa Texas. The Rec Room message on Thursday, January 26, 2012 was entitled “When Will You Bow to Jesus?” and was given by Leland. Special music was by Jolene McWilliams.
This message was a commentary on Philippians 2:5-11 with special emphasis on verses 9, 10, and 11.
- v.9 – “Wherefore God…” Never leave him out of the equation
- v.10 – “… the name of Jesus…” Not Yahweh, Immanuel, Jehovah… JESUS!
- v11. – “… every tounge…” Not if, When?
Philippians 2:5-11 KJV
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
